A POUND A TOOTH
William Barnes, a painter, was summoned by Alfred Walmsley, for
having assaulted him in the British Standard public house,
Brackenbury Street, on Thursday week.

From the evidence of several witnesses on behalf of the complainant
it appeared that on the day named, the defendant, along with the 
complainant and several other men were in the British Standard public
house.

The landlord, Mr. Watson, happened to be asleep on the sofa. They 
had not been in the kitchen very long when Mr. Watson awoke, and 
as he was drawing a fire up to the fire, the complainant got hold of him
in a friendly way and lifted him on the sofa. The defendant thought
they were fighting, and said he would not have a grey-headed man
abused, and smote the complainant on the mouth, knocking three of
his teeth out.

The magistrates wished the case to be decided amicably, but no
decision being come to, they fined Barnes £3 and costs, or in default, 
one month's imprisonment.
